What to do if you are challenged at the polls
First, make sure that you are in the proper voting location! If so, and if your name or signature does not appear in the list of registered voters, or if your registration is challenged at the polls, ask to complete an affidavit ballot. This is a paper ballot that you will complete and seal in the envelope that will also be provided to you. At the close of the polls, the sealed envelopes are brought back to the Board of Elections office where your registration will be verified before your ballot is canvassed.
